Refuge landscape view from the road Enjoy watching wildlife from your bicycle, a great way to experience the refuge.

The refuge encourages visitors to utilize bicycles, an environmentally friendly form of alternative transportation, to enjoy their National Wildlife Refuge.

East Low Flow Conveyance Channel Service Road offers almost nine miles of contiguous gravel roadway with little to no vehicular traffic and provides a relaxing bicycle ride with the opportunity to catch a glimpse of some of the more secretive wildlife that call the refuge home.

Other portions of the refuge open to year round bicycling include New Mexico Highway 01, the Point of Lands Scenic Overlook, and the two-way road bisecting the Auto Tour Loop.

During the summer, April 1 through September 30, the North and South Auto Tour Loops are open to bicycle traffic. To reduce disturbance to migratory waterfowl during times of peak migration, these same areas are closed to bicycle traffic from October 1 through March 31 in order to not disturb the cranes, geese and ducks for which the refuge was established.
